I have some news that you may or may not care about. After a glorious 8 months of doing absolutely nothing, I am finally going back to work. (I was laid off due to lack of work, not because I’m a lazy fart.) I was actually contacted by my previous employer. Part of me feels weird going back after having been laid off, but the other part of me is happy that I get to skip the whole interview process. I can’t stand interviews. It’s also only a five-minute commute, which I always loved. There is a downside though. (Isn’t there always?) They are offering me a temporary to permanent position, depending on how business goes. The uncertainty is troubling, but at least I’ll be better prepared than last time. (And the pay is actually better, so who cares?)
There is another negative though. My ass won’t seem to fit into any of my old work slacks. Not so much my ass, but rather the place where my flat abs should be and my love handles shouldn’t be. UGH. No, I don’t want to be one of those girls who obsesses about weight. Anyway, what I really can’t stand is having to buy new pants as a result of this weight thing. Did you know that people suck at making pants? With this one brand I was trying on, a size 3, 5, and 7 all fit exactly the same. REALLY? And when comparing a size 3 to a size 9, there was barely a half-inch difference in the waist band. Again, REALLY? Since I’m talking about clothes, I’d also like to vent about the fact that designers need to realize that women are not always proportional or perfect. Just because a woman has a thicker waist does not mean that she has thicker legs. Sometimes a woman’s legs are a size 3 but her waist is a size 5 or 7. OKAY? Thanks.
Alright, so if you learned anything today, it’s that my pants don’t fit, and I’m going back to work…naked. Just kidding. I did manage to find a few slacks. Anyway, I’m going to try to enjoy my last few days of freedom. Although I’ve had more than enough time off, I still can’t believe it’s over. This is gonna take some getting used to. You really do get used to being unemployed. I actually have to set my alarm and go to work on Monday. WHAT?! F&*#!!!
Have a great weekend!
